Happy Birthday To Me!

Coins | user_30307

First of all, I apologize for not uploading in a long time. But know,lets hop into the story! So know it is the month January! It's finally the New Year! My birthday Is on January 23rd! Friday afternoon( January 12th), my dad was looking through some mail on the counter. I wasn't really paying attention since I was watching TV. My dad was still sorting through the mail. Then he walked toward me with an envelope in his hand. He handed It to me. He said that It was from the ANA. I hadn't been on the website in a while so I was surprised to see that they had given me something. When I opened the envelope, the first thing that I saw was a letter that was bordered by balloons. I was confused. So I went ahead and tore the letter open. The thing that I realized was that letter seemed heavier than regular envelopes. I went ahead and read the letter. The first thing It said was Hello, Riley Z. Wells! I read the letter. By the end of the letter I was smiling! They had said an early Happy Birthday to me! I really appreciated that the ANA took the time to actually send me something for my birthday! Also I had realized that I was holding on to something slippery. So I took the thing out from the letter. I was gawking! 20 YN Dollars! I never had any YN Dollars before! They look so cool. But there was still something inside the envelope. The thing looked like a coin inside a flip. So I went ahead and took a look at It. I was, yet again, gawking! A mint condition 1971 Denver Lincoln Cent! It was amazing! I will forever treasure the treasure I received for my birthday! Thank you ANA! And a very Happy Birthday to me!

It was SOOOOOOO freakin' cool! I think the next solar eclipse is on April 8. 2024! I hope other people enjoyed it as much as I did!

COIN HUNTING ROADTRIP!!!!

Coins | user_30307

So today after school, I'm going to Nebraska. The last coins that I had looked through, like pennies and other coins, hadn't been turned in yet. I always go to a first bank because there is one by me, and its coin counting machine doesn't take your money! I never use coinstar anymore because it requires some money to actually operate. For example: $10 = $7. What I got back was $38! When we hit the road after school, we're gonna stop by some banks. I'm planning on getting a box of pennies, and a roll of halves. Also, I might be uploading on my youtube channel! I am sure that it'll be fun!

HUGE BANK SILVER SCORE!

Coins | user_30307

So I took a trip to Nebraska. I like to coin roll hunt where ever I am because I like to see which places are better and which places have more special coins at. One of the, is DEFINITELY the bank that my papa use to work at in Nebraska! The day was already amazing, but I knew how to make it even better! I had a couple a bucks on me, so i planned to go to the bank to get some rolls of pennies(F.Y.I, I found a couple of things in the rolls!). When we got their, I also asked the bank teller if they had any silver coins, wheats, or anything special. The bank teller went to the back of the room! My heart pounded like a speaker system a he came back with a little cup that had special coins. He dumbed em' out and I saw silver! There was one silver quarter, and a BUNCH of mercuries! I asked him if I could purchase them, and he gave them to me for face value, which was only 96 cents! I couldn't thank him enough! When we got in the car, I looked at them. One of the mercuries was from... 1917!!!!!! And another one, dated 1942, is In ... MS - 64!!!!! THAT WAS ONE OF MY BEST FINDS EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Actually, one of the next times I went there, they had ANOTHER mercury dated 1938! And now, I always got the that bank!

ERROR ALERT!

Coins-United States | user_30307

So it all started getting another box of pennies. I had got the box from my good bank, colorado state bank and trust. I was searching, and I hadn't really found anything. When i finished the box, I looked through everything one more time, which I always do because sometimes you can miss things. I looked at them with a loop to see if I could find any errors or varieties. I didn't find anything, but there it was! It was a regular 1970 D, or so I thought. Something looked of about the mintmark. And amazingly... it was.... a .... D OVER S! I couldn't believe it! I had never in my experience of coin roll hunting had I ever found any thing like it! It made my day. And that is one of the first errors coins I had EVER found coin roll hunting!

CRAZY UNC WHEAT FOUND COIN ROLL HUNTING! It was as shiny as a sunbeam!

Coins | user_30307

So I recently searched through a box of pennies on the weekend that I got from a really good bank. I went to the same bank where I got the box of pennies that had the 1905 Indian head penny in it. I got back in the car, anxious to see what was inside. But when I checked to see if there were any enders, most of them were 2017's. My happiness faded away a little bit. When I FINALLY got home, i headed down to the basement to make a youtube video about the box of pennies(if you want to see my youtube channel, its riley the coin hunter!). I didn't think I would find anything cool. So far, I had found a few wheats, a stamped, and a couple other ones. I opened another roll that seemed to be another regular roll. Some of the edges looked shiny, but I just thought they were some more 2017's. I poured them out, I skipped them through. and there it was. A beauty. It showed the obverse, so at first I thought it was a 1960's BU penny. But when I looked at the date... IT WAS 1953!!!!! I was flipping out about it. I thought I my eyes were playing tricks on me, but my eyes were perfectly fine. I recorded the incredible discovery on video. It was one of my best finds ever!

MY FIRST INDIAN FOUND COIN ROLL HUNTING!

Coins | user_30307

My first Indian head penny found coin roll hunting happened in the year of 2016. I was looking through one of the best boxes of pennies. I had already found a 1951 king George Canadian penny, a 1964 young head Canadian penny, and a couple of errors. The next morning, I started looking through the other half of the box. I wasn't finding anything. I started to get the idea that I had found everything in the box. But then this happened! I was looking through what looked like a regular roll of pennies. I was sliding them out of the roll, and that's when I saw a reverse of and Indian head penny. And old, brown ONE CENT was staring back at me! I gasped louder then I ever had. I was freaking out! when I flipped it over to see what the year, I was a little surprised! IT WAS A 1905!!!!
